Hi Elis & John fans! Radio X are releasing Season 2 of a podcast we think you’ll enjoy.

How do you get through a three hour show on barely any sleep? Well if you’re Elis you have four coffees before 1pm. Spoiler alert, it all gets a bit silly.

The Band is back together. Elis has returned with news of what he’s been up to, mainly being a father (again). John’s had an issue with his iPhone. We all must bear our own cross. 2 exciting competitions, one to win tech prizes and one to name Elis' son. We also ask the question, what do you do with a surfeit of breastmilk?

In 255 episodes, have you heard John Robins do an impression of a Dalek? The wait is over. Tim Key played another blinder as he deputised for Elis.

Following some big news from Elis, a super-sub wonder kid was required to step in. Enter: Tim Key. Who knows, some of you might even recognise his voice from LONG ago?? It was a brilliant show as Robins threw open the Weirdness Amnesty once again and Tim went to Rymans. As well as all this, there was a welcome return for a Classic Made Up Game, a sporadic Potato Potato, an unconscious Shame Well and an impromptu Birthday Game!

John can’t stop making soup…. It was a very ratty Robins today, but at least he’s not had any nicotine this year. Why on earth did Elis choose this week to argue with him about Queen???

If Elis says he was working, then he was working ok? Also, if John wants to challenge a listener on whether or not they’re breaking the law; that’s fine too. It was a banger of a show this week, full of festive silliness and anticipation for the big 250! There was a dash of shame, a measure of Humblebrags and a tidy portion of the Paper Review too!

John’s going to be shameful, Elis is going to be sexy. These are facts and they are constant. This week, the lads explored “Sportz Chat” and compared puberty cakes. There was a toilet-related Shame Well, a well-funded Welsh Word of The Week and a return to the wonder that is the “Rush Hour Crush”.
